FontanaArte debuts at Clerkenwell Design Week in London, from 19 to 21 May, with a prestigious collection featuring high lighting engineering and aesthetic content, the result of collaboration with internationally renowned designers.
A selection of products that represents all the aspects of this brand: part of the 2015 collection, with LEDs and considerable technical, decorative and design value, will be on display together with lamps from the 2013 and 2014 collections and some of the most representative icon pieces.
FontanaArte offers lighting solutions with a high lighting engineering and aesthetic content, decorative lights that respect requirements for the contract sector: focus on easy installation, versatility of use and lighting engineering requisites with the use of LEDs.
Lamps chosen for use in retail and work settings, in hotels, restaurants and bars and also for residential interiors, such as the Igloo system by Studio Klass. Presented in 2014, it integrates perfectly with Cloche, Huna and Pangen, reworkings of icon FontanaArte lamps.
Table with Wheels, the brainchild of Gae Aulenti in 1980, its 35th anniversary celebrated this year with a Limited Edition and Fontana by Max Ingrand, the lampshade par excellence designed in 1954, deserve a mention for their timeless style. These are just some of the pieces that have written the history of this brand and design in Italy and around the world, icons of design on show alongside contemporary products like Lunaire by Ferréol Babin, today also in an LED version, or Bonnet by Odo Fioravanti.
The use of glass in the 2015 collection marks a return to the origins, represented in Clerkenwell with the creativity of Matti Klenell and the Bianca family of lamps. FontanaArte was founded in 1932 as the artistic division of a glass company and today, after contamination in recent collections with the introduction of different materials, glass is back as the main player.
The new Volée task light by Odo Fioravanti and IO by Claesson Koivisto Rune are the epitome of contemporary projects, perfect for highlighting elegant rooms with plenty of appeal, meeting the most original of lighting engineering needs in the interior design sector.
